Rumour Regeneration

By subverting the tactics of certain advertising agencies, and military methods of propaganda, this project aims to highlight how we perceive local information and the importance put on educating local communities. Could this be the futile, last ditched attempt to make sure that everybody is well informed, or would it lead to more confusion.?
In response to specific areas of community apathy in  Vauxhall, London, a Think Tank "IFRA" is running an experimental style of information seeding.

The organisation is developing a way to pass on important facts relating to the changes occurring in the local area by spreading factual rumours.

Employees  are to conduct artificial telephone calls, tempting people to eavesdrop on their conversation, and therefore promoting knowledge of significant developments regarding housing, social and commercial developments in Lambeth South.

A series of auditions were conducted for such 'Conversationalists' and an office was set up to recruit new employees.
